Pregnancy Update #7: The Happy Middle

A picture of me today, 17 weeks pregnant.
My last pregnancy update was at 14 weeks pregnant. Today I am 17 weeks along and in what I call the 'happy middle' of pregnancy. My morning sickness has disappeared and my food aversions are pretty much gone. At the same time I've not reached the late pregnancy stage with the aches and heartburn yet. It is a glorious time!

My only real symptom right now is exhaustion. This baby growing takes a lot of energy. I am doing my best to eat well, drink lots of water, take my vitamins, and just embrace each day. I have not been exercising much because it is making the exhaustion worse.

There really isn't anything else to share. My weight is steady at 198 lbs, still below my starting weight. I'm still not gaining weight but I know it will start happening soon. I've not been to the doctor to hear the heartbeat or see baby on an ultrasound yet, though that appointment is getting closer.

Do you have any pregnancy or baby related questions for me? If you do just leave them in a comment!
